Restaurant Review: The Blind Pig

Well, I’ve never written a restaurant review before, and I’m not a professional “foodie”, but I visited a place for the first time last night and thought I would let you all know what I thought!

After a round of disc golf, Greg and I decided to stop in for a bite to eat at The Blind Pig on Center Point Road in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. The building was previously The Londoner, and before that I believe it was a sports-themed bar that I can’t remember the name of.

No longer “coming soon.” It’s here.

Obviously the set-up of the building is the same as the previous bars, and unfortunately I didn’t take the time to really look around at the decor. I did notice that there were plenty of TV’s around, making it a good place to watch “the game”, if you are into that kind of thing.

They had a decent sized beer menu, including several craft beers. And the food, I am told, is all made from scratch.

Greg ordered one of his faves, fish and chips, and I ordered a meatloaf sandwich and sweet potato fries. Both were very yummy. And at the end of our meal, someone from the kitchen came out to ask us how the food was, and also offered to bring me out some secret marshmallow sauce for the sweet potato fries I was packing up to take home with me. Well, I don’t know if it is secret sauce, but I don’t believe it was on the menu, so you have to know to ask for it. So now you know-ask for it. Definitely yummy!

There were plenty of other things on the menu that I would like to try, so I will have to make some more visits. And you should too!

Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to find an official facebook page or website to send you to, but if you are in Cedar Rapids, you know the area I am talking about. So the next time you are wondering where to grab a bite to eat, make sure to pay a visit to The Blind Pig!
